It’s a sign of how great Hero Within is that we’ve featured them twice within a year. (We just keep tripping and featuring men’s geek fashion…) On Monday, they announced their brand new Justice League Summer Collection including some fantastic button-down shirts and an even better denim Wonder Woman jacket. The collection is currently available for preorder with expected delivery in May. If you’re attending Wonder Con this weekend, they’ll have samples on hand for you to try on and see in person. You can shop their collection on the Hero Within site.
Also worth noting is the blog post their CEO Tony B Kim wrote in regards to the hate slung their way by some people because of the Wonder Woman jacket. Let’s all remember that geek fashion is for everybody and that everyone should be able to wear geek gear featuring their favorite characters regardless of gender. I most definitely applaud Tony Kim for confronting this hate head on and reaffirming that there’s nothing wrong with men wearing a Wonder Woman jacket.
We don’t usually cover men’s fashion here but for these ThinkGeek jackets, we had to make an exception! Check out their brand new Hero Within collection. While there is also an okay Flash sweatshirt and a decent enough Green Lantern jacket, the real standouts are the Batman pieces. All three jackets (a blazer and two peacoats) have the bat logo cleverly hidden on the back via the seam lines as you can see below:
The inside lining is yellow with a far less Batman logo but as far as the outside is concerned, this is a perfect subtly nerdy piece! While we haven’t gotten our hands on any of these and can’t say for certain, the higher price point is a promising sign regarding the quality and it would definitely be worth ordering to see for sure if you’re interested.
You can see all three of the Batman offerings below and shop the entire Hero Within collection over at ThinkGeek.com!
If you hadn’t seen it already, Kohl’s recently debuted a really neat Rogue One inspired collection. I swung by one of their stores a few weeks ago to check it out (and tweeted my experience with the entire collection) and ended up buying a few pieces. A holiday brunch was a great excuse to wear the jumpsuit for the first time!
